2019 Mountain West Football Top 52 Players: #46, Nevada WR Kaleb Fossum
The Nevada wide receiver is the second member of Wolf Pack football to make our list of Mountain West football’s best.
The Wolf Pack’s leading receiver is next.
Nevada wide receiver Kaleb Fossum is next on our list of Mountain West football’s 52 best players, coming in at #46 after a year in which he emerged as one of the conference’s most efficient pass-catchers.
His 2017 season was shortened by injury, but Fossum led Nevada with 97 targets, 70 catches, and a 72% catch rate last fall. Though he only scored once last fall, Fossum did more than enough to keep the Wolf Pack in positions to succeed, finishing the year with a 58.8% Success Rate that was among the best such figures in the country.
With McLane Mannix gone to Texas Tech, Fossum may just be the go-to option for which quarterback ends up replacing Ty Gangi this fall. Good thing, too; his hands and elusiveness are hard to find.
